Bio: I lived in Canterlot until I graduated from the School for Gifted Unicorns, where I studied magic. But during study hall and when I'm not busy, I would draw and doodle in my sketchbook.

I got my Cutie Mark one night when I was gazing into the night sky with my classmates, learning about the constellations. I saw the most beautiful moonbow and shooting stars in the sky! I was so awed by it's beauty, that I quickly sketched down what I saw in the sky! The next day, I painted the picture from memory as I thought about how beautiful Princess Luna's night skies looked a long time ago. I brought the finished pic to my class and showed everypony, explaining to them that the night isn't just a time, it's a beautiful work of art that's just as beautiful as the daytime. Apparently my classmates and teachers agreed, making me happy about my art, which got me my Cutie Mark. Apparently my Cutie Mark symbolizes two things: My love for art and my hope, like a shining star!
After I graduated from school, I decided to move to Ponyville to find a steady job and find more inspiration for my art. Something my family full heartedly were happy about.

(Please note that the next part is my own idea on how things would go if there was a seventh Element of Harmony.)

My biggest problem was making friends, since I wasn't sure how to make friends. Luckily, I was invited as one of the guests to the Summer Sunrise Celebration to see Princess Celestia. Unfortunately, that was short lived when the princess was missing and NightMare Moon appeared! After she vanished, Twilight and Spike ran back to the library, before I followed Rainbow Dash with AppleJack, Rarity, Fluttershy and Pinkie Pie behind me.

Once we got to the library, Twilight explained about NightMare Moon, the Elements of Harmony and the journey to EverFree Forest. We all traveled there, stopping each time when one of NightMare Moon's traps was triggered. We all entered the old castle and gathered the five orbs of the elements, but were missing one. While the rest of the girls went to leave Twilight alone for a bit, I looked over and saw the wisps of darkness surrounding Twilight and the orbs.

I quickly rushed over and tried to help her, but the both of us and the orbs were magically transported to another part of the old castle! There, we both faced NightMare Moon herself, as the orbs were laid around her! When Twilight was close enough to the orbs, she tried to use her magic and got shot backwards, just as NightMare Moon reappeared! I ran over to Twilight as the orbs glowed, but nothing worked! We watched in HORROR as NightMare Moon STOMPED her hooves down and SHATTERED the elements!

As the alicorn laughed evilly, I gently put my hoof on Twilight's shoulder and told her that we can STILL stop her, even without the elements! At first, Twilight told me that without the elements, it was hopeless, but I explained that there's ALWAYS hope if everypony believes in it!

She looked at me before we heard our friends and looked over at the doorway! And in that instant, the shattered jewels of the Elements glowed as Twilight explained that each of us were the Spirits of Harmony: AppleJack, Spirit of Honesty. Fluttershy, Spirit of Kindness. Rarity, Spirit of Generousity. Pinkie Pie, Spirit of Laughter. And Rainbow Dash, Spirit of Loyalty. Both NightMare Moon and I were puzzled about the missing sixth Element, to which Twilight answered. The spark came from within her heart because of her friends! At that, not one but TWO orbs appeared in a glow! We were confused as I stared at the orbs, until Twilight smiled at me and explained that of all the Elements that created Harmony, the strongest besides Magic, was Hope! I looked at her in confusion until she explained that I'm the Spirit of Hope, when I believed in Twilight herself and our friends. And with all the Spirits of Harmony, it created the Spark, which turned out to be the Element of Magic!

At that moment, each of the five ponies got their Elements in necklace form, while Twilight got hers in tiara form and my Element in a golden star-shaped locket form! (Not sure if I wanted the Element in tiara form or not, but I'm weighing the options. ^^; ) With our Elements combined, a rainbow light shot out and swirled around NightMare Moon, defeating her!!

Once everything was calmed down and explanations were told, we all went back to Ponyville, where a party was being held: The triumph over NightMare Moon AND the return of Princess Luna! While the ponies were partying, Princess Celestia and Luna pulled me aside and explained that they were glad that I helped the Mane Six out, but also bringing back the one thing both her and Luna thought they lost: Hope. Of course, I was confused about that, until Celestia magically made my night sky picture I painted appear! She explained that seeing the art reminded her that she shouldn't lose hope of never seeing Luna again. And Luna explained that it was because of my picture, she regained her hope of making the night skies beautiful for everypony to see! I only smiled as Celestia gave ME my special assignment: Writing my own reports to a Princess name Cadance about what I would learn. Nothing like Friendship Reports, more like Life Lessons Report!

I was honored as I accepted! Ever since then, I continued my life in Ponyville, still looking for my special somepony and sending my Life Lesson Reports to Princess Cadance, while writing letters to Princess Luna as well, in friendly pen pal terms!

Well, that's about it! If there's anything I should change, let me know! Enjoy!
